  • Barbarians 43 Fiji 19

  • CONVERSION, FIJI, LUVENYALI! 43-19. Waisea Luveniyali adds the extras and that's the final act of what's been an entertaining spectacle. The Twickenham crowd saw an enterprising game of rugby and although the Baa-baas had to much class, Fiji also deserve credit as they never gave up and made the most of limited opportunities.

  • TRY, FIJI, ROKOBARO! 43-17. Fiji go in search of their third try and Alex Rokobaro rounds off after taking a fine pass from Kenatale.

  • CONVERSION, BARBARIANS, LAMBIE! 43-12. Lambie maks no mistake with the easy place kick!

  • TRY, BARBARIANS, DE VILLIERS1 41-12. The baa0baas attack from a scrum inside Fiji's 22 and Lambie launches a chip kick which Jean De Villiers gathers and dots down under the posts!

  • YELLOW CARD, BARBARIANS, VERMEULEN! 36-12. Vermeulen receives his marching orders for a high tackle on Rokobaro in the build-up to Seniloli's try.

  • TRY, FIJI, SENILOLI! 36-12 Henry Seniloli rounds off a brilliant move in the right-hand corner after running onto a pass from Alex Rokobaro, who combines well with Levani Botia to set up the score!

  • Matawalu sets off down the touchline but is brought to ground by De Villiers. The Fijian does brilliantly, however, as he gets his pass away to Tikoirotuma who is tackled into touch, just outside Fiji's 22 by Taylor.

  • It's all Baa-baas at the moment. The'yre over the line again but Coenie Oosthuizen fails to ground the ball as he is held up by three Fijians!

  • TRY, BARBARIANS, TAYLOR! 36-7. Tom Taylor gets in for the try but all credit goes to the Bok trio, of Le Roux, De Villiers and Burger who combine brilliantly in the build-up before Burger offloads to Taylor, who dots down!

  • Fiji are running the ball from all areas of the field as they try to narrow the gap. Matawalu is put into space, just outside his 22, but his light up when he spots the gap and he knocks on!

  • CONVERSION, BARBARIANS, LAMBIE! 31-7. Lambie adds another two-pointer and puts the Baa-baas further ahead.

  • TRY, BARBARIANS, DE VILLIERS! 29-7. De Villiers runs onto a pass from Luatua and dots down, with two defenders, in the left-hand corner!

  • CONVERSION, BARBARIANS, LAMBIE! 24-7. Lambie steps up and coolly slots the two-pointer!

  • TRY, BARBARIANS, PIUTAU! 22-7. Le Roux shows great vision as he launches a cross-filed kick which Piutau gathers. He then shimmies his way pat two defenders before scoring under the posts!

  • The Baa-baas attack inside Fiji's half with Burger, Vermeulen and Luke Whitelock carrying with great confidence. It all comes to nothing though as Keven Mealamu is penalised for side entry at a ruck.

  • Du Plessis sets off down the touchline and is heading towards the try-line! He hands off Bai but is brought to ground by a crunching tackle from Matawalu. Du Plessis eventually pinned for holding onto the ball on the ground.

  • The Baa-baas are awarded a penalty, just outside Fiji's 22, and Perenara takes a tap penalty. Le Roux joins the line at pace and stabs a chip kick through for Piutau to chase but the ball goes into touch.

  • The referee calls on the TMO to make a decision as Vermeulen and Sam Speight both dive onto the ball behind Fiji's try-line. The TMO rules that Speight got there first so Fiji can restart from their 22.

  • Willie le Roux is on for Cordero and the Springbok makes an immediate impact on the game! He launches an attack, from deep inside his 22, and offloads to Halai inside Fiji's half. Halai is eventually brought to ground by Levani Botia inside Fiji's 22.
